Reports coming from Tennessee informed that the 11-year-old Ryleigh Taylor, living in the east region of the area, was walking along with the shore of Douglas Lake and found the 475-million-year-old fossil.

After her discovery, the girl's family called Colin Sumrall, who is an associate professor of paleobiology at the University of Tennessee.

The bug-like critters were wiped out in a mass extinction event about 252 million years ago after enjoying a 270-million-year stretch of existence on the planet.

Sumrall said he gets requests to look at "fossils" at least once a week. So what happens is, the trilobite skeleton just crumbles into hundreds of little tiny pieces, Sumrall told WATE. "To find one where all the pieces are intact, it's actually a pretty lucky find".

For nearly 300 million decades, the sea monsters resembling modern horseshoe crabs scoured the oceans. "They can actually go outside and find different things".

"I can show kids my age that they don't have to sit inside and play".

"To find something like that, it's really really cool", Ryleigh told Tennessee television station WATE-TV.

"She knew it was a fossil, but she was trying to get us to come over and look at it, and I wouldn't because I just knew it wasn't..." Tammy Taylor, Ryleigh's mother, said that the girl spotted the fossil laying on top of a rock.

Ryleigh herself hopes that her impressive find will inspire other kids to go outside and explore nature.

"To find something like that, it could spark this youngster into a whole career", he said. "Maybe she will turn into a fantastic paleontologist daily".

For now, she's just happy to continue exploring.

A Tennessee girl discovered an ancient sea creature fossil while out fishing with her family. She needs it to be exhibited in a public museum so other folks may enjoy it.

According to a post printed on Fossilera.com, trilobites proliferated and flourished through the Paleozoic globe, comprising among the first recognized collections of arthropods.

Scientists have successful found roughly 600 species of trilobites up to now. They are probably most closely related to modern horseshoe crabs. Ryleigh's fossil appears to be of an exoskeleton, which trilobites would shed as they grew.

Many trilobites are among the very first animals known to possess the feeling of vision.
